new york newspaper chooses to publish the names and addresses of thousands of private citizens who have legal gun permits. can the mainstream media still claim not to hate all gun owners after a stunt like this? "the kudlow report" starts right now. let's get the latest on the snag on the fiscal cliff talks and surprise news we are going to reach the debt ceiling in days instead of just a few months. john harwood has the details. what's going on? >> not a whole lot of actions going on. although there have been some developments. let me bring our viewers up to date on those. first of all, treasury secretary geithner this afternoon announced the united states would hit the statutory debt limit on monday. that's new year's eve. that's part of an effort to pressure congress to act to raise the debt limit which may or may not be direct limb reply indicated in the fiscal cliff talks but it is relevant to the larger issue of debt and deficits. the treasury can move money around in certain ways to extend the point where we actually reach a crisis for probably a couple of months. but this i
the jeffries trading floor today in new york. peter, you have a lot of different scenarios, but the most likely scenario that you think is that the blackberry fails, there is no acquisition on this and the cash firm continues? >> yeah. we think it costs about $1 billion to launch these devices. if successful, we think an access possibility goes up. if not, we see the company become much, much smaller a year from now. >> how do you measure success? and when we we know on this? >> we'll probably know around around/may next year. success would be call it 3 to 5 million units in the first quarter out of the gate and 5 million units plus after that. to us, that would be a very good launch. >> for anybody who is actually a blackberry user still, what do you say about these things? if there's a takeover, does that mean blackberry continues? what's the long-term outlook for the company? >> i would suspect that if you're a blackberry user, there's very little chance that your service is going to be cut off. that is a key cash flow driver for the company and anybody who would want to buy isn't concerned
where your money is? hi, everybody, welcome back. i'm maria bartiromo on the floor of the new york stock exchange. markets closing higher on optimism that lawmakers may be close to a deal on the fiscal cliff. wall street, triple-digit gain, up 120 point on the industrial average. banks in the lead, 13,353. last trade in the dow jones industrial average on volume which was modest. nasdaq composite up and 3053 and the s&p 500 picks up 16 points, better than 1% on the standard & poor's at 1446. markets continuing higher at the close. are there more gains ahead? we bring in right now liz ann sanders from charles schwab and alan gael and eric steuben from russell investment, darryl pearl from epoch investments standing by who will give us a reaction to the oracle earnings once those numbers cross the wires. they should be coming out momentarily. here's the number to look for, 61 cents a share on earnings is what we're expecting on revenue of 9.02 billion. as soon as we get the numbers we'll see how oracle is doing. liz ann sanders, deal or no deal? what's your take on all of this? >> we'll ha
that don't live in new york, here is look at the tabloids this morning. the "new york post," off the fiscal cliff. this fall is really going to hurt. ben white of morning money, dennis, said an excuse to get a bic can keeney on the cover. >> relatively slow news day. what geithner did yesterday is almost as if he is strapping a damsel in distress to the tracks and saying the stakes are rising higher. the markets are taking all this tension, all this sort of -- these things at stake to really make the point perhaps that you have to have those stakes really high for people actually to get a deal. >> on "fast" last night when that letter crossed in the green rooms, we were chatting, we said this sounds like a ploy on the part of the treasury to actually get people to start moving. obviously, there wasn't a market selloff, did have the stumbling blocks and traders on friday said almost better if we did see the markets pull back more to crystallize what this could mean for the u.s. economy to members of congress. we didn't see that. it is a numbers game though in terms of what will happen. we kn
than post nine where i'm stationed on the floor of the new york stock exchange for "squawk on the street" to see this new acquisition dynamic play out. today nyse euronext agreed to be acquired by intercontinental exchange, a young upstart with not even a dozen years of trading under its belt. this went from $24.32 and change, had a fantastic appreciation, which shows you how an iconic american business can be worth much more than it's trading floor, providing a competitor gets to acquire it. separate these companies, know what they are? they're part of a dog eat dog universe of exchanges and an industry with way too much capacity. together they become the global powerhouse that can dominate futures trading. in other words, this is a dodd-frank legislation made me do it deal. it shows both companies are willing to do what's right for you, the shareholders, even if our leaders aren't willing to do what's right for you, the taxpayers. sadly the new york stock exchange is something that we used to come into a newer company because the equity business, which is its bread and bu

money pro. doug told "the new york times" in a piece that led today's business section that one of the biggest stock market worries, the main from higher capital gains and dividend taxes would barely have an impact on the market. because so few individuals have taxable accounts. only 14% down from 29%. dog's calling it a canard. and others say the job cuts for 2013, which seems to be put as many as two million to be made jobless woend be as fast or as high. plus the tax increase can be rolled back. in other words, a deal will eventually be reached, so while bother to sell. okay, so the it's all overdone crowd may have a role to play here. particularly because it turned out that when we got a deal to avert the debt ceiling back in the summer of 2011, we caught a gigantic rally. it wasn't a mistake to sell. this is debt ceiling two. let me tell you where i come out. while nothing is irreparable in putting things back together if we go over the cliff. i'm getting worried about what will happen. certainly more than the school who says that the dire predictions are off the mark. i'm
's and dwayne reed's in new york are things of beauty and among my favorite places to shop and those who watch "squawk on the street" know i like to shop. i go to my dwayne reed's twice a week and the store manager tom does a great job. my inclination is this is a buy on any weakness and if it weren't for the gigantic acquisition i would say don't wait for the weakness. it's got a bright future ahead of it. beyond earnings monday the empire state manufacturing report from new york. in full-blown weak data mode want to see if business is rolling over. so the empire manufacturing number will set the tone for the rest of the day for things that ge doesn't cover. the fed told us businesses are ratcheting down spending. this is what we could hear. here's the bottom line. it's time to get used to the idea that we're going over the fiscal cliff. ready yourself to take a big hit in a couple weeks. but don't forget that individual companies still matter. if you really like one of these companies, i'm going to suggest buy half and then wait to see if we go over the cliff and buy the rest. let's go to te
room in some of the smaller stores? >> yeah. >> will we see these things in new york? >> you may see them in new york, but the best example we talked about last time was the pub, the pub idea. >> yes. >> we had that and started out in one and now have 55. turns out people enjoy getting together and gathering and relaxing after work. >> okay. now, you also did a study most recently a lot of -- a couple guys joked. ask him about whole paycheck and a lot of what i buy at whole foods is now cheaper than local merchants. >> right. we've talked about this. work really hard on our competitiveness. quality and value, quality and value, it's always a dance. i think we are fundamentally more competitive. and i'm looking you in the eye and saying, hey, we are going to be competitive unlike product because we're going to continue to grow the company. >> you have been doing terrific work rolling out private label. >> right. >> is there a balance? some people want to see those branded in the store, don't want all private label. other people, some of the branded companies, they can't be that happy
before christmas. i'm carl, with melissa lee, david faber at the nyse. the new york stock exchange and nasdaq closing at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. the futures, a little bit of weakness here which we'll talk about in a minute, after it comes after a pretty bad day on friday. the european markets closed for the christmas eve holidays. london, paris, spain have each completed shortened sessions in light of the christmas holiday as well. the friday sell-off, only five trading days are left in the year. is the market getting used to the idea that a fiscal cliff solution will not happen before year end? >> only a few hours remain to finish your christmas shopping. but some words of caution for toymakers. are tablets and apps ruining the season as kids get more accustomed to technology? >> microsoft windows 8 gets more bad press today, as "the new york times" said it is not leading to a boost in pc sales. is there anything that can turn that lagging sector around? futures moving lower, as concerns about the fiscal cliff talks weigh on the market. talks about progress toward a deal sent the
at the lead story, business section of "the new york times." "fiscal cutoff gradually morphs into fiscal horizon." than we get a deal january 1, 2, 3, but people talking mid-january, talking about end of january. i saw one of the pieces, early february for the first time. >> early february. right. >> i thought the markets were supposed to be going into sort of t.a.r.p. style dives by now. when does that happen if it does ever? >> yeah, well, i would still say, you know, as i said a couple of weeks ago, if that's going to happen i would stay probably bo probably goes into february when you bring in the debt ceiling. i think one of the most dangerous statements made i think last week was just when they said, well, we're willing to do a small deal now and really hammer this home in another debt ceiling debate. and i think -- if that becomes the mode usond reven-- the mo mos eperendi, it will weigh more negatively. the bottom line is, the data's been good. i'm not saying that the market's done the wrong thing. >> quickly because we got to go, my sense and great worry is that people saw what

bernie madoff in queens, new york. >> i just saw him, and i was sort of swept away, i think. >> she married him at age 18. they had two sons: mark, then andrew. bernie was building up his money management business. a typical middle-class family living on long island. >> we were both solid parents and valued our family and so proud of our boys. it was a dream, really. >> exactly when bernie madoff went wrong is unclear. but as his reputation for delivering steady profits grew, the madoffs began living the good life. a penthouse in manhattan, homes in palm beach and the south of france, and yachts in both places. >> he was a big figure in the industry. he was the chairman of nasdaq. he was constantly being honored as "man of the year" of this organization and that. and that--that had an effect on me. >> both sons went to work as traders for their father's firm in the late '80s, a time authorities believe madoff's ponzi scheme was well under way. why would your father want to taint his sons by bringing into a situation that could, well, spell disaster? >> you know, that's-- that's a gr
of daylight. that's the forecast for today as we get toward new york. high around 43 degrees. buffalo up to around 38. boston, high of 40. into the midwest, we're warming up a little bit here around chicago. we've got temperatures working into the 40s today. 51 in st. louis. 38 in minneapolis. that's going to feel nice after a couple of days in the teens. here's the preview for the next storm. this arrives for saturday. mostly rain. snow across minnesota. northern wisconsin doesn't look like a major event. but for some of the ski areas, new york state up into new england, sunday, this could be a good-looking forecast. maybe some snow here. looks like rain down the city toward washington, d.c. too warm for snow out of this one. stay tuned. next wednesday, guys, could be talking about a nor'easter, it's been a while since we've seen one of those. >> oh, no. >> just want snow. it's not -- correct me if i'm wrong because i've been wrong, it's not winter yet, is it? i'm afraid to say how many days it is because i'll mess up the math. it's not winter yet. we -- >> it's technical. in weather wo
the audience what we're talking about. >> the front page article on the "new york times" is titled bribery aisle. it's about walmart and the mechanics cal can business that was aggressive and creative and a corrupter offering large payoffs to get what the law otherwise prohibited. the times reports that the retailer wanted to build a store in an alfalfa field in a town's main entrance which was barely a mile from some ancient pyramids. the town's elected leaders had prevented the new zoning map that would have prevented it. walmart officials decided to undo the damage by a well played bribe and the guy drawing the map drew it a little differently. >> that's exactly what happened. they found the old map and the new map. they found a disk in a shoe box showing the differences. it was incredible. >> the zoning map would not become law until it was published in a government newspaper, so walmart reportedly arranged to bribe an official to change the map before it was sent to the newspaper. walmart issued a statement saying the allegations are part of that company's ongoing investigation of the

in a real way? >> i don't know of any specifically, but they're basically all saying it. new york city comes to market multiple times a year. >> all the old bonds will be type. is that right? >> i'm going to make the stand and say that they will. but in the last -- >> then they become more dear, won't it seems to me. >> yeah. but what had happened is that last week and the week before, all of a sudden there was this thought because it had been thrown about that it wouldn't be retroactive. on top of that -- >> why wouldn't that cause him to go up? >> because that means that the tax, the cap on deductions would be retroactive to all bonds. >> it wouldn't be retroactive. >> no. what happened two weeks ago was that had been on the table. >> that it would be retroactive? exactly. >> how can dow that when speak -- >> right. when people bought it on the expectations. on top of that sending the market into the additional turmoil, you have all the brokerage firms saying, you have huge gains. you have more coming into the market. >> the question is, given that weakness, given all that selling, are you
delays there. in vegas, miami and new york, minor to no delays whatsoever. that's the good news. very quickly, let's talk about the east coast. so far, so good. scattered showers on parts of the coast, but new york city expecting a high of 45 today. mostly sunny in the ohio valley, into parts of the northeast. still scattered showers in parts of south florida getting very close to the record, the yearly record of rainfall in miami. as we wrap it up, from fargo and on the other side of the river, expect snow showers. still balmy, beautiful showers in dallas. mostly sunny and 65. back to you. >> reynolds, thanks so much. thanks for flag along. >> you bet, guys. >>> americans want action when it comes to the fiscal cliff. john, you'll give us some of the highlights, but with what we've told them about what will happen if we go over, i guess we shouldn't be too shocked that they don't want to go over. we've basically said there could be a recession, there could be millions of job losses and everything else. so i guess we probably shouldn't be surprised by that. >> no, we shouldn't. they'v
measuring these things bay back in the '60s. out of all the boats registered in new york, something like 6.8% were damaged in new jersey, the figure was over 15%. so you have this big group of boat owners with insurance checks in hand which suggests to me we're about to see a big surge in boat buying. and that means the stock to own is brunswick corp. bc. the number one maker of boats on earth. now, you might think this would be a bad time to buy brunswick, given that this company makes some of the most discretionary items imaginable. basically a toymaker for the rich. and taxes on the rich are about to rise in a big way. even if we get a fiscal cliff deal. it will almost certainly include higher rates for the top 2% because the bobama refuses to b from that position. if the wealthy are going to get hit with a major tax hike, does it really make sense to own the stock of a company that owns motor yachts? not only that, but brunswick also makes billiard tables, fancy fitness machines and bowling equipment. bowling may be more of an every-man activity. i've got my own ball and shoes, yet thr

monday morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." we are live from the new york stock exchange. let's take a look at the u.s. futures set up for the open first of the week. dow looking at about 50 points right after the open. as for the action in europe, taking its cues from the united states. we'll see a big rally in china extending one of its biggest rallies in three years. we have a mixed bag in europe with italy up by about .2 of 1%. >> we'll do our best to keep focused on the business day. we'll be following the tragic shooting in connecticut, of course. the new york stock exchange will hold a moment of silence to honor the victims in the next few moments, and we'll be looking at the president's call for meaningful action and the politics of gun control. >> let's get to a road map for this morning. it starts with apple. under pressure once again. even dipping below $500 a share at some point this morning. shares will remain range bound near term. iphone 5 sales and cannibalization among the region. >> other concessions from the gop, the speaker proposing tax hikes for millionai

was interesting. he ended his last speech at the economic club of new york, i believe, by saying if we could just get past what is ultimately a stupid debate. >> right. >> there's some momentum here. and quite frankly for a lot of us in the market, we'd like to move past this. >> do you expect, however, while we fight for this fiscal cliff baloney, do you expect the market selloff? >> sure. >> today notwithstanding, but it finished well off the lows today. >> as jackie talked about, it's up for the week. for the month. i think there's still a modest positive gain. what's interesting in this debate is the two previous times we've increased capital gains, nixon in 1970 and reagan, of course, with the tax reform act of '86. the december preceding the adjustment, the stock market was down. december 1969, december 1986. i don't think people have believed they wouldn't get a deal. when we talked about we're going over the cliff after the election, i think we were the only ones in some level, at least prominence in the ability of coming on your show. we were the only ones saying that could happen. >> ca

remember that disco is few years ago in new york where the guy was thrown out. he went and got gasoline and matches and managed to kill all those people without even entering the place. all these solutions make sense. but you can never fully defend yourself against a madman. >> do we know where the mother was killed, at the home in newtown or at the school? >> no. someone was killed at that home. there are two crime scenes in newtown. the first thing i saw when i put on the television, a woman saying, i can't believe it happened here. again, it's mental illness. i would imagine there's more guns in the inner city than in newtown. it's not a case of that. we have to somehow have a way of finding these people, identifying these people and preventing this. >> and yet as we all know we don't want to -- there is a very high incidence of mental illness, very small incidence relative fo tto the amount of ml illness of these kinds of hideous events. how do we not stigmatize people who will never, ever commit or come close to committing a crime like that? these really are -- >> multiply point ab

. >> well, wasn't it in -- wasn't it in "the new york times" magazine, you really don't remember? >> oh, michael wolf's piece. >> what was it called? >> cover of new york magazine the best piece ever. i love my mother, now i wish she'd die. it was one of the best pieces ever. sounds all sick. >> you are sick. >> no, no. but it was one of the most fascinating pieces about the sort of emotional family and the economics -- we got to go. coming up, president obama calling a meeting with leaders from the house and senate today. can the fiscal cliff deal be reached? we're going to astrategists fro both sides of the aisle. plus, we're going to welcome a man who knows the world of washington and wall street very well. the great grandson of the 27th president and leading financial ceo in his own right, john taft is going to be our guest host. n] you are a business pro. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the
. like no vacation without legislation, like ogden nash. let's go to jim in new york. going to myself. >> caller: a wonder bread hostess twinkies booyah! what do you think will happen with hostess brands? will it go private or will flowers food would be a good fit? >> i don't think flo will buy them. you get a lot of labor issues and i remember flowers down there in thomasville, georgia, they don't really get into the labor issues. this outfit is more than a fashion statement. when you see me around town, you know this is how i look. i think the turnaround story at gap is alive and well. consider its pullback a chance not to pull on a full position. want 100 shares? buy 50 and wait for the latest disappointment from washington. stick around. lightning round is next. >>> it is time. time for the lightning round. and we'll take calls, and buy, buy, buy, sell, sell, sell. my staff will play this sound and the lightning round is over. are you ready, skedaddy? let's start with marshall in massachusetts. marshall. >> caller: hey, jim. i know you like cloud companies. i was taking a look at
? joining us now in studio, we welcome distinguished house members carolina maloney of new york and larry kudlow's house member in manhattan. and the republican from arizona. as always, welcome to both of you. dave, let me ask you this. i'm hearing a lot of this that there is a strategic retreat by the republican party. 57b and that they are not either in the house or senate going to block the middle class stax tax cuts which proliferate in terms of the bill. is that true, sir? >> i haven't been invited into the strategic retreat caucus. look. i hear more on the news than i ever actually come across in reality in d.c. so far, i do not see a willingness, particularly on the conservative side of the caucus, to give away our principles. >> i heard rand paul thursday night on this show. he sent a message to majority leader reed that he, rand paul, was a tea party caucus guy, free market guy, will not filibuster. he wants to get through it. he's going to vote against tax cuts but will not filibuster. there are a coup ohlele dozen house members, as you know, who signed the bipartisan letter say
in new york. >> absolutely. you don't have to just trade the s&p 500. i mean, look at tonight, you're seeing australia up a third of a point. the japanese yen is doing very well. look at hong kong. if you want to take what the federal reserve did and apply it internationally, look at hong kong. their monetary policy is pegged to what the federal reserve does. but they have an inflation issue and their economy is tied to china. so if you buy something like ewh, the hong kong etf, all those stocks are priced in hong kong dollars. if the hong kong dollar is repegged, the ewh will go up as much as the repegging. >> what does that mean for the u.s. market? where are you on the u.s. market right now? >> you know, i think right now, probably to the end of year, if we can get some kind of movement on this fiscal cliff, you have a real potential for a pop, 3%, 4%, 5%. unfortunately, as i look to 2013, i'm looking at u.s. austerity. so the question is how much is that going to be, and if it's a lot and the rest of the world can't pick up the slack, then we've got problems. if it's just a lit
on, now you're talking about high income cities like new york. you're talking about 53% plus another 3.8% with the obama care medicare surtax. >> so 53 -- 57% of the wealthiest out there -- 57% of their income is going to the government. then ron, you also agree even with that the habits are unlikely to change. >> well, that all depends. someone making a million dollars, $100,000 from dividend, 85 from capital gains. under the 250 rule, they're seeing their taxes go up $70,000 or so. under the million dollar proposal by boehner, that's a $30,000 increase. $30,000 is not that much. but it is after tax money. 70,000 is another number. i think it will affect them somewhat. i'm more worried about their future of what they'll not be saving. even the wealthy have to worry about the future. >> so how does it impact spending and give us the ripple effects of these higher tax rates and how that ripples down. >> you're talking about $6,000 a month out of their pocket. that's $6,000 is often today going to their kids, going to gifting, and going into the market. all that will get shut off. and
. -- pennsylvania, new york. there are federal dollars that pay for maintaining those highways. you can't have a million people pay for all those highways because it connects the entire country. you have forest service, 30% of the land is owned by the federal government. so there's a lot of federal dollars that come to montana. that's part of the system. >> what would be the economic impact, going back to what the farmer was telling us about the situation, if estate taxes go up 55%. we're going to see farmers cutting back on the size of their farms, some may even go out of business. what's the economic impact and how can you mitigate that, governor? >> the difficulty here is over the long-term. naturally, sometime during january if we go over the cliff which is more of a hill, these congressmen will come to their senses. they've gone completely crazy and apparently if you vote for something on december tlonl, then it's okay with grover nor quist and if it's after december 31st, it's something else. look, a pledge is one thing, but look right now we've been spending money on a credit card natio
for "the new york times" and "the huffington post." it depends on the small business. it's funny when people say all small businesses will be affected if the fiscal cliff does hit, but don't forget, there's over 20 million small businesses in this country and it depends what business you're in, where you're located and what business you're in and where your customers are and there are factors when you start to generalize. >> we hear it mostly on the taxation side. if you raise taxes on people who make more than $250,000 don't forget a lot of small businesses file as individuals and make more than $250,000. >> it's absolutely true. i mean, but most small businesses, particularly my readers and the clients that i have, they're bracing for that. it seems an ineshvitablility th there will be increases in capital gains and interest rates and estate taxes next year and that all seems to be on the board. >> health care will get more expensive if they provide it. >> michelle, remember, it's not going cripple many small businesses. it's a deterrent from them investing and it's a deterrent from
will be on taxes? >> i see it going off to 200, and i think democrats especially from new jersey, new york, connecticut, that would be fine with them and it's just a matter of damage control. >> and will republicans have to pay in any way for something that has no spending cuts in it. >> ideally, a lot of these guys would like to wait until january so they can say we voted for a tax cut and the new status quo is where all of the taxes have gone up. i'm sure there will be primary challenges. >> what do you think? >> first of all, let me be clear. i think 50/50 at best for exactly the reason you cited. i can't imagine that reid and mcconnell are having a happy discussion right now, so there will be serious differences there. for example, if mcconnell insists on keeping the estate tax parameters where they are instead of going where the president is, that completely seals the deal and that's one piece. >> michelle, you've made that point throughout the show, and i partially agree with you, but i will tell you this. right now everybody in this town is focused on taxes and preventing 98% of hou
